LU Serve is the department of Liberty University which has an administrative side, known as CSER (Christian Community Service), as well as local, domestic and international departments.
Those various departments can focus on anywhere from Liberty projects, Lynchburg based projects, VA state projects or even projects as far out as Israel volunteer projects.
In previous years, Liberty hosted a similar event, on a much smaller scale, known as Love on Lynchburg. This was the first event that Liberty ever hosted that was on this large of a scale both in the number of volunteers, as well as the total number of events taking place at the same time.
Just over 1,500 students from Liberty volunteered for the first ever Serve Lynchburg Day that also had over 50 different events (listed below) taking place in various locations. From cleaning up trash, to volunteering in senior living centers and local businesses, Liberty was all over Lynchburg working to make an impact in the community.
The University then conducted surveys with all the organizations and businesses that the students volunteered with and the results showed that Liberty has a great impact on its community.
